Unmanned systems potential for military logistics – Presented by Thomas Lanson, MPrime Energy at the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which takes place on June 13, 2017, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.
Overseas operations are characterized by non-permissive environments which can hamper logistics and therefore combat operations. The development of unmanned systems can offer an alternative to the systems currently used. Beyond technical choices, this presentation aims to put into perspective functional requirements and operational needs of military end-users.

Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) systems are about to bring massive disruptions the transport sector. Stakeholders active in this industry have to adapt their organisation accordingly in order to optimize operations and revenues. UCA offer increased productivity and can open up new markets in areas where manned air transport is uneconomical and geographically limited. The Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference brings together technology leaders, cargo operators and end-users to share the status of these exciting opportunities. The conference also addresses the benefits of unmanned cargo for military purpose such as unmanned transport of goods in high-risk areas.
Focus topics: Military Systems;Long Range / Medium-High Payload Systems ; Specialised/Irregular Delivery Systems;Urban Delivery Systems; Autonomous operation architecture; Regulatory issues;New value chains / business models and more…..
